Robert Downey Jr is so well known that he needs no introduction to the world. But if you are one of those few unfortunate souls that don’t know about him, we would highly suggest watching Marvel Studios’ Iron Man. The performance of the actor as the billionaire superhero is so spectacular that people often associate the name Tony Stark with Downey Jr. Over the years, he has consistently been building himself up to be hailed as the cornerstone of the MCU.

But one thing to keep in mind is that during the build-up of the MCU, there were equally exceptional and one-of-a-kind actors that would eventually go on to become the Avengers, Earth’s mightiest heroes. Actors who all played their roles in the MCU are really well connected to each other on a personal level apart from their professional life. But, it seems like Robert Downey Jr. cherishes one star a little bit more than many of his co-stars, and it’s not a surprise why.
